I caught a whole load of these when the retro was in NYC and the Bay Area. It is great.

Which of these would be the best to see? I want to take the opportunity to see the best ones I can, in addition to whichever ones will play the best on film as opposed to video.

I've never seen any Ozu films before.

I hear Tokyo Story is supposed to be the best.

I Was Born, But . . . was Ebert's critic selection for last year's Chicago International Film Festival. Many consider it Ozu's masterpiece (it's an earlier silent film). He remade it into Good Morning.

YMMV. It's probably his most highly regarded, but it's not my personal favorite - Late Autumn is.

Wow, I wished I lived near there. I just ordered Floating Weeds and Tokyo Story but it would be great to see it on a big screen.

I caught a handful late last year at Berkely.

I would highly recommend Late Autumn and Late Spring (though I didn't see the latter).
Early Summer and Equinox Flower are also quite good.

Definitely avoid Hen in the Wind unless you're a completist/auteurist.
